Carragher names his XI of the Premier League season so far

Antonio Conte's side have won four games but also fallen to defeats against Burnley and Manchester City, who are the early joint-leaders with United on 19 points.

Carragher delivered his verdicts to the Daily Telegraph.

In goal, Carragher opted for David de Gea, the Manchester United and Spain 'keeper widely considered to be one of the best in the world and arguably the best in the Premier League.

The former Liverpool defender picked Chelsea's full-backs, Marcos Alonso and Cesar Azpilicueta to provide attacking options from the back, accompanied by Spurs defensive pair Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld in the middle.

Both were seen as the pillar behind Spurs title onslaught last season as Mauricio Pochettino's side became a hard proposition for opposition teams to score against.

Tottenham finished third in the Premier League during the 2015-16 campaign and second last season. "Alongside him, Belgium team-mate Vertonghen was not far behind".

Moving up the pitch, Carragher has picked a midfield three of N'Golo Kante, Philippe Coutinho and Kevin De Bruyne.

Manchester City, Chelsea and Manchester United have all dominated the Premier League title between them since 2013 - albeit for Leicester's fairytale triumph - despite United having struggled initially when Sir Alex Ferguson retired.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan's form since the start of the season, as well as Christian Eriksen's displays over the last year, would easily put them in contention for a place in anyone's Premier League team of the year. "I think he is going to be a future Player of the Year contender".

Right winger: Sadio Mane (Liverpool)'Last season without him Liverpool fell apart at times.

Centre-forward: Harry Kane (Tottenham)'We are three or four years in now and I think we will be saying the same in 10 years about him being the main striker in the Premier League'.
